It's a meme! (Part Three)

A while back, I ripped off an idea from my friend David, who informed that it wasn't a ripoff, it was a, a meme. Maybe you remember it: the next ten songs on your iTunes/iPod/WMP playlist.

I thought it would be fun to see the state of the playlist today, many many albums later.

  • Wig Wise, Charles Mingus, Thirteen Pictures

  • Condition of the Heart, Prince and the RevolutionAround the World in a Day

  • Luke and Leia, John Williams, Return of the Jedi (soundtrack)

  • Heart Like a Wheel, The Human League, The Very Best Of The Human League

  • Sequence/Song: Jesu Christes milde moder, Anonymous 4, An English Ladymass

  • Prayer For Passive Resistance, Charles Mingus, Mingus at Antibes

  • Discontinued, Death Angel, Act III

  • Puisque bele dame m'eime/span>, Anonymous 4, Love's Illusion

  • The Trash Compactor, John Williams, Star Wars (soundtrack)

  • Bambi, Prince, Prince

Notice that as with last time, "random" doesn't seem quite random. Two Mingus numbers, two Prince tunes, two Anonymous 4 pieces, and two selections from John Williams-penned soundtracks? What are the chances? I've got hundreds of albums on this thing.


  • (Josh) Yay, I can play now!

    "My Mind Is Dangerous," Life Of Agony, Soul Searching Sun
    "Frustrated," Starfish, Frustrated
    "Fields Of Fire," Big Country, The Crossing
    "Needles," System Of A Down, Toxicity
    "Sob Story," Minor Threat, Complete Discography
    "You Didn't Need," Rollins Band, The End Of Silence
    "Diamonds And Rust," S.O.D., Speak English Or Die
    "Mudride," Mudhoney, Superfuzz Bigmuff
    "Sans Cosm," Sparta, Wiretap Scars
    "Drown," Smashing Pumpkins, Singles Soundtrack

    No album repeats, this time. I see it happen fairly often even on iTunes, where I have about 10,000 songs loaded.

  • Ha, does "Diamonds and Rust" even count? I wonder how big an MP3 that makes. 10K or so? Heck, you could probably store it uncompressed!
